By Terez Paylor - The Kansas City Star

"Linebacker Tamba Hali reiterated Thursday that he would like to stay in Kansas City.

"At this stage of my career, it isn't about money," Hali said. "The Kansas City Chiefs have taken care of me, financially.

He was big for his age — though the future guard had yet to grow into the 6-foot-3, 323-pound body he toted around at this week's Senior Bowl workouts — but he was new to football. And he hadn't quite embraced the physicality of it yet."    READ MORE…

Today: OL Geoff Schwartz.
